One of the best holidays of the year is fast approaching: Independence Day. Many families use this annual holiday to laze around the yard, munch on grilled burgers, and watch short-lived fireworks flutter into the night’s sky. But for those of you who are aching for a July 4th vacation filled with rushing rapids, wilderness adventures, and private lodging, we recommend seeking out ACE Adventure Resort, one of the top-rated places to go on July 4th in the Appalachian Mountains. Trade your apron for a wetsuit and your tongs for a paddle this Independence Day here in Oak Hill, West Virginia. Our massive resort is the perfect escape for families who are searching for an ideal blend of excitement, relaxation, and scenery.

Family-Sized Log Cabins

First and foremost, ACE Adventure Resort has the largest collection of family-sized log cabins among West Virginia resorts. When searching for “places to go on July 4th,” we hope that you think of our lake and mountainside haven because our log cabins were practically built to house multiple families at once. We have a wide variety of log homes, cabins, lodges, bunkhouses, and group tent sites that sleep anywhere from 10-16 people at once. Most of these accommodations have full kitchens, hot tubs, grills, fire pits, and yard space, all within a short stroll from white water rafting, paintball, frisbee golf, and so much more! And perhaps the best part is that your Independence Day celebration can still involve crackling fireworks, tasty grub, yard games, and utter relaxation!

Big Air Blob Competition

One of the many reasons that ACE Adventure Resort is considered one of the top places to go on July 4th is because of the annual Big Air Blob Competition at our on-site Wonderland Waterpark. Kids and adults alike can get launched 50 feet into the sky above our private lake during this amusing, innovative competition. Teams of two, consisting of a “launcher” and a “launchee,” will compete for prizes and bragging rights on the first Saturday following Independence Day. A row of judges will critique and score each team based on form, height, and creativity.

July 4th getaways to ACE Adventure Resort are entirely flexible thanks to our wide variety of on-site activities, including world-class white water rafting trips, ziplining, and mountain biking. Even though we’re an adventure-based destination, most of our activities can be conquered by children eight years old and above. Our friendly, well-trained staff has years of experience teaching visitors of all ages “the ropes,” regardless of the activity. Here’s a short list of family-friendly activities that everyone can enjoy this summer:
